João Vasco Paiva | ‘Mausoleum’ at Encounters Section of Art Basel HK 2015

[15.03.15 - 17.03.15]

Edouard Malingue Gallery is pleased to present in the Encounters section of Art Basel Hong Kong a structural installation by the emerging Hong Kong- based artist, João Vasco Paiva (b. 1979) who observes the complex and continuously shifting characteristics of objects and spaces. The proposed structure combines these artistic concerns by presenting Paiva’s visualisation of the contemporary mausoleum, which instead of historical blocks, has been created by the careful stacking of market place styrofoam boxes cast in stone resin. By virtue of the structure’s form, material and resonance, Paiva elevates the commonplace and extends its meaning beyond the ordinary towards the mythical. Moreover, the structure probes viewers to reflect upon the fundaments of our society, what as a civilization we will leave behind, and what to us now is sacred.

Venue: Edouard Malingue Gallery, Hong Kong
